it's an excellent hotel, fully renovated, near the city center.the rooms are very good with a nice decoration. They have a nice swimming pool and the stuff is very friendly, free wifi, a variety of tv channels. it is better to book a room with a sea view even if it's more expensive. beware, in ramadan almost all the restaurants...

A nice surprise because I had read so many bad reviews of hotels in Algiers and so I was really expecting the worst. We arrived early evening after a long transatlantic flight and a long stop over in Paris so was looking forward to a nice room and a good bed. The check in was swift, professional and very warm;...

Stayed briefly at this hotel during a stay in Algiers. The rooms are top-quality for the price and the balcony shows a good view of the nice side of Algiers. The bathroom is particularly well constructed. The breakfast buffet was varied and tasty -- a bit expensive, but it's hard to find a good breakfast in Algiers so you're probably...

At first sight this hotel is a gem. The location, architecture and general ambience are attractive features, but sadly the experience is undermined by the poor service levels. The rooms are beautifully appointed. They have good bathrooms and, for some rooms at least, there are stunning views of the city. For some bizarre reason there's no wifi. The room service...

Recently renewed, the acomodation is of a 5 star hotel. Large lobby, and the rooms are good, with a balcony with table and sofa on the outside. The hotel is on the top of the hill. Breakfast is good for a 5star, but not great. Lots of people on the desk, but service not that fast. Had to wait a...

Regardless of the brand you stay, generally the quality of service is very low in Algeria. I think El Aurassi is a rare exception. With a totally renovated hotel, clean rooms, great restaurants and good location, I believe it is the best and only option. Still they have some way to go but this is the best you can get.

Unfortunately Algiers lacks of good standard business hotels. You will always be stuck either at the Hilton, or the Sofitel or the Saint George. Was really looking forward to a promising new venue in Algiers. Sadly I've ended up having rather bad experience. The hotel was renovated recently, and you can see it in a very modern (standard modern) lobby...

I stayed at El Aurassi together with colleagues from 24 February to 01 March 2013. We were organizing a meeting. As such, the review is not only addressing to tourists but also to professionals wanting to access El Aurassi's meeting facilities. One of the worst experiences ever. Although the hotel has been renovated, nothing justifies the price of 200Euros/day. Same...

Last time I stayed in Aurassi was 14 years ago... Since then, hotel was closed for 2 years, and now it is like a new hotel, with the same astonishing architecture, magnificient view, spacy halls and rooms. All that is very, very, very good. Compared with Sheraton (until now, for me, the best hotel in Algiers), only for this Aurassi...
